Lesson in Ink: Russian Egg
Painting eggs is a traditional part of the Russian culture. It became a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and this led to a legacy of colorful eggs that were decorated to symbolize the connection with new life. Many of the artists that have painted these eggs down through the years have made a very bold impact on Russian culture.
